Activities such as players throwing the ball around the horn are out for this season. For Rhys Hoskins, the option to wear a mask at times at first base has crossed his mind.
“Initially, I had thought that any time that I was on the field, I would not be wearing a mask, but maybe it’s something where I keep it in my back pocket in a zip lock bag or something,” Hoskins said.
Hoskins says he was able to work on his new batting stance at home even after baseball was shut down in March.
“I have a bat on every floor in my house. I just pick up the bat and pick it one time and 20 minutes later, you do the same thing. In that sense, it was nice to have because that’s time I wasn’t necessarily going to have during the season,” he added.
